Dad has always been prone to black moods but they seem magnified sometimes at the moment. He always says when Drs ask about MH that he feels fine and is not depressed etc etc. He gets very grumpy and you really can't do right for doing wrong. You are either told off for ignoring him and he says no one stays with him, or that you talk to the dog and not to him. If you ask him if he wants a cup of tea, he will moan endlessly how that's all anyone asks him, but he won't talk about anything and sleeps all the time or watches rubbish on tv. Does he want to go out- no to cold, to dark . Nothing comes out of his mouth that isn't a moan, winge, complaint or grumble. It gets very trying indeed to deal with. When family helicopters turn up its all smiles and he's fine for the brief ten minutes they stick around Moans about all carers whether any good or not, what's on tv, what he's being given to eat, Anyone else got to deal with this- how do you keep positive?
